Alex Anthony Salon

Alex Anthony Salon

  • Price band: 3/4

After working as an educator and stylist at curly-hair haven Oiudad, Alex Mnayarji has teamed up with longtime friend Allison Lacorazza (who helps run the business side of things) to open her first salon. The loftlike space features an open layout with dropped aluminum ceilings and purple accents. Services include haircuts for women ($95–$135) and men ($75–$105), highlights ($100–$275), deep-conditioning treatments ($75), revitalizing scalp treatments ($115) and relaxers ($175). While prices aren’t cheap, we love that five percent of the salon’s quarterly net profits benefit the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition (barcshelter.org) and Gilda’s Club (gildasclubnyc.org), a Manhattan home for people living with cancer. Mention TONY to receive a haircut and scalp treatment for $110 (normally $210) or a haircut, face-framing highlights and blowout for $195 (usually $250) through December 31. (646-499-1111, alexanthonysalon.com). Mon–Fri 8:30am–8pm, Sat 8:30am–6pm, Sun by appointment only.

Bronson van Wyck pop-up

  • Price band: 4/4

The event planner whose client roster runs the gamut from Daphne Guinness to Barack Obama is hosting a temporary shop to help you decorate for the holidays. Inspired by Van Wyck’s own Christmas festivities at his family’s Arkansas farm, the space includes tartan-lined walls, vintage leather sofas and deer-antler chandeliers. You’ll find a mix of vintage pieces ($15–$6,500) and decorations created by Van Wyck himself ($50–$1,250). Deck the halls with mistletoe ($50), pine-and-cedar garlands ($250–$1,250) and magnolia wreaths featuring dried kumquats or gilded details ($200–$9,500). If you’ve got the dough, spring for a predecorated Douglas fir or blue spruce ($1,250–$3,000), complete with lights and a steel stand. (212-242-3004, vanwyck.net). Mon–Fri noon–8pm, Sat 11am–7pm, Sun noon–6pm. Through Jan 3.

The Erno Laszlo Institute

  • Price band: 3/4

Once a well-kept beauty secret of Hollywood icons, European royalty and New York society swans, Dr. Erno Laszlo’s institute reopens after a 40-year hiatus. Now anyone willing to drop $6,000 for a yearly membership (which includes facials, peels, special serums and laser treatments every three to four weeks) or $2,300 for a three-month version can be pampered like Grace Kelly, the Duchess of Windsor and Gloria Vanderbilt, who once snuck into Laszlo's exclusive facilities, then on Fifth Avenue. The glamorous tri-level spa features six private treatment rooms, a library-turned-lounge replicating Dr. Laszlo’s original 1939 study and a shop hawking the entire skin care line ($39–$325). The ground floor features a rotating art collection curated by author Patricia Eszter Margit (patriciaesztermargit.com). For a bombshell glow without the hefty price tag, pair sea mud cleansing bars ($39)—immortalized by Woody Allen in Annie Hall—with precleansing oils ($45). (646-386-7379, ernolaszlo.com/institute). Mon–Fri 10am–8pm, Sat 10am–7pm, Sun noon–6pm.
